About Your Trip
This tour is based on a mixture of hotels and simple guesthouses. As with everything in Iceland accommodation is very expensive, so we have tried to choose places with prices that allow us to keep the holiday affordable. The accommodation consists of twin rooms, although single rooms are also available. You may however, be required to share facilities. While we pre-book all accommodation according to the itinerary, as space is limited we may move to alternative accommodation according to availability. In rural areas of Iceland, where hotel accommodation is scarce, there are a number of ‘seasonal hotels’. These may be day schools, boarding schools or social centres that offer good standard tourist accommodation for the summer

Iceland is on the northern edge of the temperate zone, meaning it has cool summers. Daytime temperatures in the summer months can be anything from 10° to 20°C, though in 2008 they reached 25°C and could equally drop close to zero. As we are in some mountainous areas, you must be prepared for some days of poor weather with strong winds and rain, but usually the weather is quite pleasant, though cool. There is constant daylight, but not midnight sun, in May, June and July.

Unfortunately, yes. Costs can be very high and you should be prepared for this. Any dinners not included weill cost about £30-£40 and a beer about £6. The local currency is the krona, and can be easily obtained on arrival. ATMS are availabe in most towns as well.

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is not to be missed! This large lake of steaming hot water is perhaps the most supernatural looking body of water on Earth. Descriptions of its waters range everywhere from “the same colour as the new Gatorade drink” to “frosty blue.” Though the latter term may sound good, the water in the lagoon is anything but “frosty.” The temperature in the swimmable area averages about 40C (104F), and the soothing, mineral-rich water is rumoured to have curative powers. You can plaster yourself with the mineral-laden mud, let your shoulders be pummelled by the thundering waterfall, swim and venture into the sauna.
